Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium, Auckland Reviews
We had such a great time there. It was so much fun. The entrance was grand and so many things to do. They had a huge cafe inside and also a big play area for the kids. Penguins were my absolute favourite ! There is also a small retail store for tiny aquatic gifts. Fairly well prices attraction. Wish it was bigger and had more things to do but definitely worth a visit.
The fish etc are wonderful. But the premises are looking tired. The cafe and shop need a revamp. Loved the kids area But an explanation about what to do with the colored in fish would be good. We discovered it but a lot of kids we saw missing the fun. Overall it was great. Took our 3yr old grandie. She loved it. So did we.
I did not sea before any sea life in my this is my first experience. I was really really awesome. Many many sea animals and creatures in here. I saw all of them before in book or movies. It was really awesome day for me and my family. Near here lots of place we enjoy the sea beach area as well. People are catching fish near sea world. Lots car parking here. Staffs are very helpful.
Went there on my birthday with my friends. It's nice place. The moment you enter, you'll see heaps of penguins and they are very cute. As you move forward, you'll see many different creatures. There is one spot where you can accept the challenge of keeping your hand in ice cold water for 30 seconds. Trust me, it's not as simple as it sounds. Besides this, you can also see some sharks over here.
I haven't been to Kelly Tarlton's since I was a kid about 25 years ago! Now I have a child myself and I wanted to see what it was like. I was pleasantly surprised. It sure has grown in size since then. We spent a great 3 hours wandering around all the exhibits. An amazing space to explore. My son loved the penguins, turtles and the sharks. But most of all the water play in the playground. I loved the classic underwater travelator with the stingrays and sharks swimming around you. A bit expensive but worth it I think.
